Happiness, agony and at the same time impatience; that were the first feelings when entering at the DOL publications.

A few months ago I was announced that I was one of the lucky workshopaholics who will feel the reality and the energy of fashion industry during an internship at one of the most well-known magazines worldwide, Marie Claire.
The first feeling was an unexpected happiness, due to the fact that only few people have this kind of chance, and even fewer when they have just started experiencing the fashion world. I considered myself to be one of the luckiest. My name was at the third group of the chosen ones, so the only thing I had to do was waiting my turn. Meanwhile I was learning from the other groups all the amazing experience that they had during that period pf time at the magazine. As a result, I couldn’t wait for my time to come.
And here we are now experiencing the first week. I entered in a world that it existed for a long time in my dreams, but I never had the chance to actually live it.
Magazines, fashion photographs and editorials are the first things you can see when entering at the Marie Claire offices.
Straight away I started learning the process of creating an issue and how this manages to reach at the reader’s hands. Up to now I’ve written an article for our page at the Marie Claire issue and I’ve seen how a fashion photoshoot becoms an actual editorial.
A short period of time in a great magazine and I just feel my hunger for fashion bigger than ever. And that is only the beginning. I can’t wait to experience the whole opportunity that is given to me and learn as many things as possible.
